Amos 4:6, Clean teeth

And I also have given you cleanness of teeth in all your cities … yet have ye not returned unto me, saith the LORD.

//Here’s an odd verse. God seems to be saying that he granted Israel snow-white choppers and still they didn’t turn to him.

As I admire the manicured smiles of American Idol contestants, I wonder how many of them give glory to God for their oral hygiene?

OK, enough toying with you. “Clean teeth” in Bible days is no gift. It means an empty stomach, and it’s God’s way of saying that as much bad fortune as he smote Israel with, they would not give in.


  1. This is a very wonderful and inspirational adage. It gives a lot of meaning. That is true, there are many people who forget God in times of happiness, but in times of Troubles, as if they can’t go away of the church and altars.

  2. The truth is every one with great teeth should be thankful because it was based on your genes that the Lord has gave you.

  3. you guys are killing me! :)

  4. Thanks for sharing this. I didn’t know that there was a verse about clean teeth in the bible. I think I’ll post the quote in my office.

    • Here’s another one I just love:
      Ps. 81:10 “Open your mouth wide, and I will fill it.”
